Silver Borne- Patricia Briggs

I haven't been reading much books lately but saw the latest Mercy Thompson book by Patricia Briggs and bought it. I wasn't disappointed, I liked it.  I read the book in two days.
The story line if you haven't read any of the Mercy Thompson series, is about Mercy who shape shifts into a coyote.  She is a auto mechanic and is bonded to the local Alpha werewolf, Adam.  Her roommate is Samuel, who is centuries old and also a werewolf.  He tries to commit suicide but the wolf in him takes over. 
Mercy is in trouble with the Fae again, they want a book that a local bookstore owner who is part Fae loaned to her. 
It has usual violence that is associated with fantasy action novels.not excessive.  There really isn't any sex in this book or any of the Mercy Thompson series.  It is an easy read with good characterization, plot is acceptable since this is a fantasy novel, and story is good. 
The Mercy Thompson books run along the Laurell K Hamilton and Charlain Harris books with the timeline in the novels being compressed to a couple of days.  The novels take up after a few weeks or months so the whole series time line is a few years. These books have much going on, in the plot and the action of characters.
